Another day out here in Leafs Nation, and it’s another quote from Mike Babcock that we’re left wondering what he’s talking about.
At this morning’s practice, Babcock pushed this quote out to the media:
Mike Babcock says he’s been vocal about what he’d like to see the #leafs add before the trade deadline. He wouldn’t bite on what that is. “The people who need to know, know.”

The contract is eight years long, but we really wonder if Mike Babcock will ever bite on giving us a piece of insider info. He’s batting 1.000 so far on keeping his lips tight and always leaving us wondering what will happen next.
It’s pretty clear at this point that he’s got at least some sort of say in roster construction, even if he’s not the one in the backroom pulling the strings.
The Leafs are currently sitting third in the Atlantic Division and line up as underdogs in any likely playoff matchup. However, Babcock’s quotes seem to suggest the team is looking to improve, rather than sell assets (like JVR) for a future player/prospect.
So what would you add? Is adding the right move? Would you prefer the Leafs look to optimize their lineup internally, with options like Kasperi Kapanen and Travis Dermott? Will Matt Martin ever play again?
